This is a great recording although the bass is a little quiet. The Umbilical Moonrise sounds a lot like the one on Germination although I cant be for sure.

Reviewer: jedimastermojave - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - July 31, 2005
Subject: Great show but...
Everybody giving this show five stars seems to have not listened to the distortion on disc three. I think most reasonable reviewers would agree that a five star show should be perfect or close to it -a whole bunch of distortion should keep any show from earning the highest rating. That said, one can easily burn set one onto a disc and have a complete set of high quality music. If you're new to Lotus, I suggest that you first download 1-9-02, Billy's, Grand Rapids, MI (digital soundboard) and 11-24-04, The Brass Lantern, Reading, PA. These are two excellent sounding shows that don't have any significant flaws.

Lovely show; gets all my friends dancing - in the kitchen, the yard, the car...

Try it on an airplane, high over the mountains.

While there is some distortion in the last few tracks, I apparently didn't find it as nearly as obstrusive as others. Overall, the show is as clear and crisp live recording as you will find. The performance is stellar and entrancing. Very highly recommended.

Subject: This is one of Lotus's most entrancing shows!
Jam packed crowd - bittersweet night - even though it was short lived and the music, heck yeah, the music!

Subject: Groovy
My brother recommended Lotus, and this show reveals why. Very groovy: got me dancing in the kitchen (which is not always easy to do). The sound is not a problem at all.

Subject: Awesome Awesome Show
Yeah the last few songs are distorted but besides that, the sound quality is great and most importantly, the band plays an amazing show. I give it five stars. Does anyone know a way to cut distortion out of an mp3 file?
Reviewer: Grafzahl - favorite - April 30, 2004
Subject: 1st listen then burn cd
At least the last 10 minutes of set 3 (starting in lotus2003-02-08d3t05.wav, i.e. 6 min 11 sec in this track) are absolutely distorted - my ears did not stand listening to the end and so did may ear phones. I am sad that this show got 5 stars and I burned it to several discs without controlling the sound quality (my fault). I started with set 3, cannot tell anything about the rest of the show - sorry I had to write this first).

Regards

I have a few Lotus shows and i saw them live in Charlotte. If you want a show to get you into this band, download this one. very good soundboard matrix with the crowd. This recording gives you exactly what you hear live, including the stage fixes and such. excellent show, download NOW

This show absolutely ROCKS. The jam and funk they blend with their ambeint/dance sound is great and the recording is very good sound quality with lots of crowd noice ....CHEERIN'em on.

Hot stuff - get it.

Subject: Awe Yeah!
Wow! what a show. What little I have heard of this band just keeps getting better. So smooth and fun to dance to, it's hard not to be feeling this performance. With out a doubt, if your at all into some of these newer progressive jam bands, Lotus is a must. They touch all the bases. This show is a perfect start. The recording is crystal clear and the vibes are high. Enjoy!
